What can I say? Xerxes, the Norwegian legend has given Kahvi an exclusive selection of previously unreleased tracks. Seventeen audio treats ranging from the seriously ambient My Favorite Kind of Silence to the most beautifully composed piano lead in Slide. Old and new works make an appearance in this huge and amazing album - the definitive Xerxes, just for you, good Kahvi listeners. Playtime of around 1 hour +.

It seems as though our very own Mikael Fyrek has a story to tell - at least, according to the track names from this, his latest ep. With 'I step into the advent', Mikael has perfected the ambient/instrumental genre once again - conveying huge amounts of feeling and emotion in every track. Each being an epic in its own right, the usual excellent use of sounds and production are apparent from the start. All the track in the ep are a continuation of the previous, to create one big picture in your...

After contacting them they kindly agreed to come up with a release for Kahvi Collective, and here is the result! Im Garten der Scheekugel (In the garden of the snowglobe) constists of twelve tracks of interesting and provocative tracks, simplistic beats mixed in with techno/idm influences with a slightly industrial edge.

After previously releasing on Kahvi, Mikael Fyrek could be called 'a regular' - this ep, his fourth, is a classic example of the defining style of Mr Fyrek, good solid beats, a touch of elektro and a touch of Vangelis. An icey theme and perhaps even slightly disturbed state of mind can be seen from the track names, conveying intense emotions through music. A thoroughly enjoyable, intense, atmospheric and involving ep running at around thirty minutes 'A thousand years and one' is a great...

Muhr, as featured on numerous other labels in the ethosphere, arrives on Kahvi at last. Otherwise known as Kahvi veteran Vizion, has produced an entirely different style and persona to go with the alternative artist name Muhr - subtle, minimal, ambient, emotional. All the ingredients for the usual Introspective release but with a Canadian twist of ice. Some lovely work in this release, so do the man a favour and leave some feedback!

Stud makes a return to Kahvi in the shape of 'Swordcore'. A curious name for what turns out to be a distinctly non-curious release by Stud. A different Stud is apparent from the previous strange-but-great releases previously featured on Kahvi. Perhaps this is due to the fact that Stud has been DJ'ing in and around Moscow these past years and as you can see, the tracks are aimed squarely at the dance end of 'IDM'. Some truly epic and excellent tracks can be found in this 6 tracker - Liquid Fur...

Reii is the next guest artist to grace the new kahvi pages. Entirely different and slow paced to Tom Bragl in 245, Reii creates what could be said as a tribute to Autechre.

A two for one guest release this time around, with Evan Valentine (kikapu) and e-sin (lifeform project) giving us a pure idm vibe. melodic, glitchy and quirky with a hint of reggae (seren) thrown in for good measure. tracks range from the disjointed everyone is out to get me to the purely sublime 'a good hard look' with its sampled guitar riffs throughout. a fitting inclusion to the collective. worthy mention: track 1: hopes for a quick and dreamy.

A new guest artist visits Kahvi - Mataya, who goes down in history as being the very first artist to feature on Kahvi who hails from Macedonia. Interesting influences of style and flair are apparent in this electronic masterpiece, semi-commercialisms erupt in a couple of the tracks but this crossover between west and eastern borders makes for an interesting listen. Mellow, chilled, ambient with a touch of melodic IDM. Welcome to Kahvi Mataya!

After the excitement of the netaudio festival we're going to slow down things a bit with a release from guest artist 'Weldroid'. 9 tracks of elektro inspired works - hints of alpha conspiracy in jack and the fairy, chilled out beats in carousel and my personal favourite hydrocarbon with its catchy beats and melody. a feeling of dark and metalic beats seems to occur throughout this release, cold and monochrome. A slightly different style to feature on kahvi but one worthy of a listen.

A completely different style now, from Crud (Corrupt Records). An ambient soundscape with quality alongside that of The Orb - this is a continually evolving track with a feeling of warmth.

Branching off in a completely different direction now @ Kahvi. Something entirely refreshing comes in the form of a six track ep from guest artist mindsplit. The ep is a dub oriented blast with elements of ethnic percussion, idm and electronica and reggae beats. Slow paced but interesting and diverse, Mindsplit sets the mood for the kahvi 'christmas release week' which will be happening from 17th to 21st december. One release each day until the official kahvi christmas release which will be...

Kilowatts is back - after his highly successfull track featured on Robot Dreams, Kilowatts returns to Kahvi with a six track ep entitled 'six silicates'. After the pure ambiance of casimirs blake, Six Silicates turns the mood with beat driven electronica/techno, fast paced and dynamic vibes and a definite 'euphoric' theme throughout. A warm and friendly ep to welcome the summer months, listen and enjoy the sun! Track of choice: Amethyst. This release sees the new podcast format being used for...

a very welcome return for the lithuanian maestro named MigloJE. this time around we have an ambient extravaganza. in Miglo's curious, quirky but extremely well produced style. the tracks form a live performance at a festival somewhere in Lithuania, written to complement old folklore and a special place (hence the names that I cant pronounce). playtime over 90 minutes. switch off the lights, close your eyes and dream.

many moons went by and all of a sudden an apparition appeared on the horizon - a reinvented 'luke the wizard' no less, this time around known as Nova Viator. A couple of huge releases suddenly arrived in the inbox. Rudi Rudi is the more unconventional of the two, with 17(!) tracks of uniqueness. I would say the best description of this release is a patchwork of 'shorts' - ranging from 40 seconds to 6 minutes long, all painting one bigger picture. All the tracks have something quite epic,...

after the popular premier of abyssal plains on kahvi a while back, he's back once again with a four track ep. hemispherical sky is a slightly different departure from his previous idm/ambient smoothy - this time round concentrating more on the chill and easy listening while-you-work vibe. excellence as we were expecting, long and drawn out tracks that allow you ample time to get seriously into. a seriously nice piece of work. I would like to dedicate this release to the memory of my dad who...

Introspective arrives for the very last time, at least as the man we known as Introspective. Look at this last, great album as goodbye to the old style and hello to the new. Black Mesa Winds is the culmination of many months hard work, pure ambience with a Tangerine Dream edge overall. Emotional and sentimental, this album is a tribute to Introspective and his studio equipment. Which is now missing due to some individual arriving in the early hours and wandering off with it. So, enjoy this...

Brioskj last appeared in a various artists compilation back in release 164. After getting some excellent feedback I thought it was time that Brioskj deserved his own release. Coming from Italy, a release with spotless design and flair, ranging from ambient to idm and easy listening to more beat driven pieces. High quality production throughout, some excellent strong tracks which will certainly be a worthy addition to your permanent playlist.

A mellow EP by Mindflower now, ambient textures and nice melodies, breakbeats with sum bass, and that genuine warm feeling make this a very nice debut EP.

Coax, an artist you might be familiar with after being featured on other netlabels, arrives on Kahvi. Conveying all that makes summer fun and enjoyable, sunny sounds, happy beats and melodies and definately a feeling that can be classed more as upbeat and 'euphoric' rather than the sublime atmospheric offerings we're used to. A nice change, fitting for the summer weather and an emminently listenable ep which just flies by. This release marks the beginning of the Kahvi summer holiday - Kahvi...

A bit of a mixture in this VA compilation - created out of the best or most downright weird submissions I've got over the past year at Kahvi HQ. Ranging from the truly bizarre Planet 54 by Skruvmejsel to the sublime Kota Kakumi by Little Bitchard. Theres hardcore, hardfloor, chill, ambient, mellow and oldskool, something for everyone in this 10 track release. Designed to be fun, enjoy and wonder at the weirdness and delights.

The last release before Kahvi v3 goes live, and this time we have (yet another) guest artist. In a similar style to the much popular 'Zilent Zpott' or 'Cardamar', Eros is fringing on the commercial side of the electronic music Kahvi releases. Easy listening, easy to get into, nice to work to, Crackle Creations have produced a very nice 6 track ep for your listening pleasure. Track of choice : 'Water Mist'. Enjoy!

Guest artist craque arrives on Kahvi Collective with a unique blend of textures and IDM elements. Five track 'Material' verges on the style of 'MigloJE'. Torus Europa sets the scene with its lush, drawn out passages of sound and textures and leads into the interesting 'strawberry jam', an atonal melody drawing on a paced bass line which makes a nice combination and the extraordinary 'organum' (my personal favourite of this release) with 'that' sample hook that fits so well with the rest of the...

After some successful releases of mix on Kahvi, Polaski has followed similar DJs in turning his attentions to the creation of his own original music. What follows is his first four track ep, heavily influenced by Boards of Canada (check Loss of Grandios) and Arovane. A warm, fluid, easy listening collection of tracks, a sentimental edge with the classic off tone analogue sounds, subtle beats and addictive melodies. Polaski has studied the style of his favourite artists well, and this reflects...

Kahvi @ Christmas 2008: Continuing the Christmas releases for 2008 is a guest release with a difference - as the artist, Attic Moth, says in his bio, he uses "Algorithmic composition, serial, stochastic and aleatoric techniques" to create textured or "fractal works". Curious, interesting and different, Fractal Works has a winter feel, cold but warm to the touch and a gentle divergence from the usual Kahvi style. Christmas releases 2008 continue shortly!

Finally its here, the Christmas release schedule @ Kahvi 2008: The first release is by moscow native - moroza_knozova (including the _) the latest guest artist to his the Kahvi archives. this seven track ep, entitled Valek Polkis, is a ride through ambient/idm noway, Planet Boelex inspired coolness in seagulls and bees to the amazingly addictive leads but strangely entitled rtyjd2. The ep grows on you to such a point that you have to have just another fix of your favorite track. Information...

A new guest artist arrives for release 226. Bioradio is an artist who likes to create complementary textures - ambient mixed with some electronica ingredients. Postmorten Winners is the culmination of this, repeating grooves in enter end to the extreme ambience of the huge pusto (running at twenty minutes for the single track!). High quality and professional, this ep lets you unwind from the likes of 'The Five Fish Fingers', another ep to sit back, relax, rewind and listen again. Cover artwork...
